Why has /mu/ turned so shitty lately?, i hardly see a thread about actual music(Jazz, Classical Music, Music theory, and so on).
I used to listen to nothing but classical and jazz when I was 12.
While you've got to respect the classics, you also have to realize how simplistic classical music was - Bach was cutting edge back in his day just for playing more than one melody at once.
Sorry, but my brain needs more auditory challenge.
so you listen to a bunch of hipsters trying to copy old music or do you listen to a bunch of niggers "rapping" about how many bitches they fuck?. How smart
i've been here since like 2007, but i've got the feeling that this site has worsen a lot in the last year(although at least we don't have the pony plague anymore).
I'm a crossboarder and I barely come here, but you have to realise that Bach cannot be taken out of hist historicla period. Then again, he has much more complex stuff.
That said, if you take things like the 2nd movement of Beethoven's 9th, to give you a well known example, you see it is far from simplistic, especially when you realise that there's no mixing to be done to add layers.
This is a shit thread, though.
The advent of television, radio, and especially the internet has put the artist into the public spotlight so reputation/publicity is now necessary for art to be produced. Any artform, no matter how "highbrow", is now directly tied to the maker's personal life. Sometimes deliberately, sometimes not.
And that's precisely what I'm complaining about. Butt fuck me, I've don't watch tv, have any form of social media and feel bitter about half of what's around me. Why would ever anyone cater to me?
ah yes, it's the thinly veiled "le wrong generation" thread disguised as someone who bitches about things that aren't "classy"
perhaps you should spend your time more wisely, friend.

The elitism is to be expected on an anonymous website. The scope of discussion on /mu/ can get pretty big but you have to work for specific genre discussion and also have to factor prominence with consistency, i.e. dont expect a meaningful discussion on Daft Punk 2 days after a big event involving them due to shitposting in full effect, but also dont expect a good discussion if yesterday you had a good thread already.
TL;DR start threads once in awhile instead of just lurking.
You listen to music that fits your personal brand, one of a person who listens to "intelligent" and "sophisticated" music.
You want /mu/ to change because you see yourself as a /mu/tant and you want to fix the contradictions in your self-image. How can you be intelligent if /mu/ isn't, after all?
